Vík í Mýrdal, Skaftareldahraun and Kirkjubæjarklaustur

We briefly stopped in Vík í Mýrdal for a shopping break (big Icewear store, I love outdoor clothes!) and a quick visit to the gorgeous black sand beach. The weather was stunning! I’m sure it was a bit windy and a bit chilly, but with clear skies like these, how can you go wrong? WeContinue reading “Vík í Mýrdal, Skaftareldahraun and Kirkjubæjarklaustur”

Puffins and a gorgeous black sand beach

Reynisfjara, for me one of the highlights of my travels through Iceland. It was windy and -again- there were a lot of people of which quite many were climbing the basalt columns, which made it basically impossible to get a clean shot.

I’ve always wanted to do that! 🙂 After this waterfall, we went to a nearby waterfall: Gljúfrabúi, which means ‘canyon dweller’. It was a challenge getting through the canyon over slipperyContinue reading “A day of waterfalls”

The Golden Circle

August 22 2019 I hopped on a plane to Reykjavík, Iceland. Finally, a dream was coming true! I’ve wanted to visit Iceland ever since I started riding Icelandic horses way back when. A country that speaks to the imagination; rugged, harsh and barren, yet diverse and insanely beautiful! I spent the first night in FosshótelContinue reading “The Golden Circle”

Arctic journey’s end

Our time on Spitsbergen was coming to an end. We packed our bags and were dropped off at the airport. It didn’t take long at all to get through security. The airport is tiny! But I love it, it’s got a charm about it. Then it was time to wait for our flight. Our planeContinue reading “Arctic journey’s end”
